How To Reset Your Home Security System In Fayetteville

An important advantage of getting your home security installed by trained experts is that you rarely have to make major adjustments to it. Even so, there will likely be a few instances where you need to reset your alarms in Fayetteville. If you use a smart command panel, your system reset typically requires just one or two tap of a button following occurrences like battery changes, power outages, and false alarms.

Consult Your Instruction Manual Before Trying to Reset Your Alarm Panel

Here’s a simple yet valuable tip before you try to reset your Fayetteville home security system, read your owner’s manual ahead of time. You don't want to damage your system as a result of touching something incorrectly. In addition, control panels may be different if you switched from a numerical keypad to a fully digital system. If there’s ever a time when you’re unable to figure out how to reset your system, don't hesitate to contact your trusted security specialists.

Resetting Your Fayetteville Security System Because Of A False Alarm

Generally, a false alarm happens because of an accidentally tripped sensor. You can use the control panel or open your ADT smartphone app and touch the shield option and enter your unique passcode to deactivate the alarms when this occurs. You might be contacted by your monitoring professionals, but just tell them it was a false alarm.

Resetting Your Alarm After A Power Outage In Fayetteville

When you lose power because of a storm or other event, you might start hearing a beeping sound from your control panel. That indicates that your home’s defense is running off the battery backup. To reset your equipment and stop the steady beeps, you should deactivate and reactivate your system.

But please note, if you lose power for prolonged time frame, you might need a full reset of your system. Follow the instructions in the manual -- usually by putting in your PIN number and pressing the designated button two times -- and you should be running fine. You may continue to notice chirping caused by the secondary power source, as it’s possible it won’t end until the battery charges entirely. Contact your security technician if you keep having difficulties with your ADT system 20 hours after your power is back on.

When You Need To Reset Your Home Security System After Changing A Battery

On occasion you must replace a battery within one of the devices in your security installation. In order to accomplish this, you will change your alarm system to Test Mode so you prevent setting off an alarm by accident. Once the new battery is put in place, change the alarm panel out of "Test Mode" and restore your usual settings. If the command center fails to recognize the component or the battery light stays on, you may have to perform a full reset of your security system.

Resetting Your Fayetteville Security System After Adding Or Deleting Someone

Adding and deleting users can be completed on your ADT Command hub and your ADT mobile app. You should never require a system reset when deleting or adding a user or code. But you should note, if you move into a new home with an existing ADT security system, you should reach out to your home security professional at (910) 275-4051 to set up a new contract. The technician will visit your property to switch out equipment, set up additional alarms or cameras (if necessary), and perform a full reset.
